Brief Answer:
Excess release of a hormone called prostaglandins

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thank you for consulting HealthcareMagic!

Excess release of a kind of hormones called prostaglandins usually causes this kind of pain in the middle of cycle and sometimes during menstruation. It also indicates that your joints are more sensitive to the changes in metabolic processes such as productions of excess prostaglndins. Usually it does not indicate a disease or other medical issue. However, other things have to be excluded based on physical findings by a Gynecologist.
